The Castle has everything for everyone! The at home style beach friendly rooms, a stone's throw from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean offer a heavenly home away from home. We arrived to hear sounds of fun and a LIVE BAND at the tiki style full functioning outdoor restaurant Coconuts!The full bar and CRUSH BAR, that sits along side their stage and volleyball court (open to guests) have every combination of spirits one can imagine! And the food is delicious and varies for every taste preference. They have vegetarian options too! And seafood! Everyone knows Maryland Crab Cakes are the best... and Coconuts is, from what we heard, a local's favorite spot for their famous Tipsy Turtle and Bloody Mary's with shrimp & Crabcakes!! The palm trees and beautiful landscaped flower beds give way to sparkling tan sand that rolls all the way to the blue ocean. This is the place to be in OC!!!!! I will never stay anywhere else!

Ive been coming to castle n the sand for a few years and each visit is wonderful... the beds are amazingly comfortable clean and neat... the service was excellent if there were any issues a few minor things they made it their business to oblige us during our stay... They will definitely remain my home away from home.

We stayed in the Waverly Castle and had a fabulous view of the ocean. Pricing was very accommodating. Parking was easy (it was right before springfest). If you go in April, half of what you want will be closed. Would of had a better time if we went later, but, not the Castle's fault.

We stay here every year. Love everything from the beach front food and drink service to coconuts beach bar to the pool and live music! A great hotel stay and a great family resort. Happy hour every day at coconuts is a must after a long day. The staff is one of the friendliest you will find in Ocean City Maryland!
